The last decade has seen outcomes-based partnerships being formed for the first time in a growing number of countries around the world. From tackling issues around youth employment and child welfare to improving health and education, these partnerships have taken a variety of forms. But what conditions make a country or an ecosystem, including its service providers, “ready” for an outcomes-based partnership? What capabilities could be built over time to prepare it?

These two frameworks were produced by Social Finance UK, in partnership with the Government Outcomes Lab, after a review on the key conditions and competencies that enable successful delivery of outcomes-based partnerships.

The review builds on existing evidence and practice to develop two coherent and comprehensive frameworks for assessing the readiness of eco-systems and service provider organisations respectively, to engage in outcomes-based partnerships. Providing tools to map the necessary competencies is crucial in identifying and better understanding gaps and in informing a substantive capacity-building agenda for policymakers, donors and funders to use.
